Independent Living

2017 Red Book (US Social Security Administration): A Summary Guide to Employment Supports for Persons with Disabilities under the SSDI and SSI Programs

One of the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) highest priorities is to support the efforts of disabled beneficiaries who want to work by developing policies and services to help them reach their employment goal. The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs include a number of employment support provisions commonly referred to as work incentives. The Red Book is a general reference tool designed to provide a working knowledge of these provisions.
